    I worked at Fairfield Medical Center full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of benefits, employee discounts, pto is awesome

    Cons

    Very high school, lots of favoritism among managements and certain nurses . Says open door policy but not really.

    Advice to Management

    Be fair to everyone and not just your clique. Help grow people instead of tear them down.

    Pros

    There are zero pros for working here - don't do it

    Cons

    The health insurance is very expensive for very little coverage and requires a bio-metric screening that affects the price you pay. The administration is very grey on everything when it comes to holding their employees responsible for adhering to deadlines, following rules, and safety protocols. The pay is very low for the job that you do and most of the employees are very lazy in completing their work which results in them hiring only the people who don't really care to begin with.

    Advice to Management

    Tear it down and start over from the ground up - overhaul all managers, CEO, COO, President, and senior staff. Hold your employees to actual standards and fire them if they sleep on the job, or cause a serious health event.

    Pros

    good patient interaction, awesome foundation

    Cons

    too much work, not enough pay

    Advice to Management

    Need a lot of work on communication. The cultural change is supposed to offer meaning but it really doesn't. Employees are overworked and underpaid and they don't care

    Pros

    Convenient if you live in Fairfield County but not much else in the way of positives. There is a core of good people but they get frustrated and overworked.

    Cons

    No consistency in policies or workflows. Talks a big game about corporate culture but promotes bad behavior in the lack of integrity with Administration and HR. Horrible pay, no chance of advancement. Overall lack of knowledge of basic healthcare practices and regulations and very behind the times with operational structure.

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach. Get some new blood in there and staff with people who actually know what they are doing if you want to compete with the large health systems that are just waiting to take over.

    Pros

    The employees are great people,
    Good region in which to live and work,
    Excellent heart program,
    Plans for continued growth, service lines and improvement,
    Organization committed to growth of organization and services.

    Cons

    Not really many cons. Any I would have are pretty consistent with most any healthcare organization - is the nature of the business.
    Overall pretty happy here.
    Leaving for family reasons, not because of organization.

    Advice to Management

    Continue with culture development,
    Continue with plans for growth and advancing service lines,
    Remain independent if at all possible - it is a drawing factor for patients and staff.

    I worked at Fairfield Medical Center full-time

    Pros

    The front line people really care. Regardless of how many changes in leadership, the staff respond with one of the core values of agility. Great physicians.

    Cons

    The wages are terrible. No performance based incentives and no raises. The operations are seemingly dysfunctional. Multiple patient safety concerns not addressed. Changes in the senior leadership occur frequently. Managers are promoted without posting positions. The culture is supposed to be transforming, but it is a backbiting environment that is reminiscent of high school and the mean girl club. New team members are eaten alive. Business minds are discouraged. If you speak up, you are singled out as not a team player.

    Advice to Management

    By keeping the wages low, you are sure to only recruit folks from the community who haven't experienced positions in Columbus in health systems that operate in a more focused manner and still provide great care, most likely without the safety issues. Hire managers with talent.

    I worked at Fairfield Medical Center full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Close to where I live.

    Cons

    Hostile work environment. Too many positions of "authority", but totally unnecessary. If you don't start your nursing career at this facility, don't bother. FMC only wants people they can shape to fit their dysfunctional mold. Nursing practices are not evidence based but are done based on their philosophy of "this is how we've always done it". Patient safety was a HUGE concern while I was there.

    Advice to Management

    Why are there so many of you? And why have clinical charge nurses and team leaders working the same shift? Why have team leaders at all? Your facility is a small community hospital, not a big academic medical center and even at the current huge facility where I work, the only "team leads" are in the ED. But you staff them in all of your units? It's just bizarre and know it creates more problems and drama. Additionally, allow staff opportunities for education and try to utilize talent when you have it. The power trips especially in the former ICU (management) are completely ridiculous and unnecessary. Oh and stop treating new hires like they are spies because they have a close relationship with a higher up than you....... Just saying. We all come to work to do a job, at least I do.

    Pros

    Community Oriented. Close knit culture. Center provides excellent care.

    Cons

    Wages and benefits do not meet the job expectations. Senior leadership not always in tune with what is really happening.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to the input of staff.
